NY tickets obstructed view - how bad is this?

Post by somewhat_nifty » Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:31 pm

After an hour of trying I managed to get tickets for Radio City Music Hall on the 16th, after I bought them I realised they are 'obstructed view' - does anyone know how bad this is? They're in the 2nd Mezzanine a few rows back from the soundboard but off to one side. The interior views on the venue website are a bit misleading, seeing as they show the stage from my seat totally clearly, I suspect this isn't the truth! To be honest, it's my first trip to NY and I'm seeing Leonard, so it's all good really, but the website said some obstructed view tickets might have a completely blocked view, which I'd be upset about.

i was there just last week and had an obstructed view seat and could see just fine. the theater is raked so that there are really no bad seats. and being near the sound board is good because that's where the sound is usually really good.

it'll be fine! enjoy!!

I went to see Rufus Wainwright at this Venue with the obstructed view. If you are on the right side or left side of the table at the center its a awesome sight. Also, the sound is impeccable. I have obstructed view seats for this show on Saturday also

I managed to get an obstructed view seat about 5 seats in from the side...but right behind the soundboard. I hope I'll be able to see....but as long as I get to hear well I'll be happy.
